Patiently Waiting...

Tuesday was Day 21 for our chicks and we patiently waited for the first peck.  We even wore chick hats and watched!!

Of course this year it didn't work as planned and the chicks hatched at night and in the early morning so students didn't get to see the full process.

I'm okay if you even say that my ed tech and I look like first graders too.  That would be quite the compliment.  I mean, can you spot us?

We have 5 lively, little, ADORABLE chicks!!


One girl ran up to me and told me I had to look at a chick.  I wasn't expecting to see anything unusual but then this happened!!  Of course my heart dropped and I thought the worse but he was just relaxing.  This is really how our little chick was sleeping.

We've spent a lot of time just looking at them but today they were out and about!

More pictures to come...

Happy Mother's Day!!  I hope you're all relaxing and enjoying the day. We painted some canvases and added hearts. They looked adorable. Students also decorated tins and wrote 5 reasons they loved their moms.

We Have some BABIES!!

We candled our eggs this week to see if we had any LARGE, black eyes.  This shows us that an embryo is growing.

Out of 12 eggs we spied 11 eyes looking at us.  We have 13 more days.

This is always such an exciting time of the year for us and of course I'm a nervous wreck hoping they all hatch!

Mrs. Littlefield also came in to talk to first graders about farms and chickens.  She even brought some 3 week old chicks in to share with us.

She also taught us the parts of an egg.
